    1.owe nothing to and owe everything to.

    Nothing that someone has done for me has helped me therefore I owe that person nothing. The opposite; The things that someone has done for me have helped me therefore I owe that person everything.

    2.the noes have it. "the no's have it". In a vote to decide something, there were more 'no' votes than 'yes' votes, so the people who voted 'no' won.


    3.born out of the ashes. Some good things grow out of destruction. Certain forest seeds require the heat of a forest fire, which would be viewed as most as destruction, to germinate. These trees are literally born out of the ashes.


    4.a pimple in the ass. A person or an event that is a mild irritant.


    5. borrow from [ not of money ]All languages borrow words from other languages.




    thanks
